Phnom Penh (FN), Sept. 20 – Cambodian workers’ minimum wage has increased to USD 190 in 2020, according to the announcement of Cambodian Ministry of Labour dated on Friday.

The ministry said the new wage will be effective from the first of January 2020.

The trilateral meeting among government, factory owners, and workers this Friday has determined USD 187 as the minimum wage, yet Prime Minister Hun Sen announced to add USD 3 more.

It is worth noting that minimum wage in the kingdom has increased by USD 20 within three years, from USD 170 in 2018 to USD 182 in 2019 and to USD 190 in 2020.

While Cambodia offers a minimum wage of about USD 190, Vietnam only offers USD 120 in some regions and only $110 in Indonesia and Laos.
